Huge congratulations to our competition winners!
Matilda, age 6 created our wonderful Early Years winning image. Her picture contains all the things she can't wait to do when lockdown is finally over. We'd love to join you on that beach Matilda!
Bella, age 8, is the winner of our Middle Grade prize. Bella's picture captures all the things she felt and did in lockdown. It truly captures the mixture of feelings I'm sure we all had - I love that Joe Wicks made it in!
Our teen category winner is Lara Louise. Lara's image is very personal, her pet dog died suddenly and unexpectedly early in lockdown. This very sad event was mirrored by a happy one when her family got a new puppy. We felt her image captured a really intimate feeling of all that confusion of mixed up sadness and joy - very familiar to a lot of us as lockdown gave us time to slow down and space to breathe but also took away our freedom and made us worried for our families.
We also wanted to give a special mention to Reinalya whose image captured all our hashtags in one picture!
Well done to everyone who entered, we loved seeing all your pictures!
